Carol Wise - 8-Jul-2007 - Katrina's Jewish Voices




Carol Wise, a real estate agent and fundraiser for Jewish causes, was interviewed on July 8th, 2007, by Rosalind Hinton.  The interview focuses on her experiences of displacement during Hurricane Katrina and her changing ideas of community after she returned home, particularly the heightened importance of Jewish community survival in New Orleans.  Her contributions to the rebuilding effort included installing playgrounds and restarting a child care program, Success By 6, with the United Way.  She also discusses her family upbringing and education, career path, and changing relationship to Judaism over the course of her life. 

This Oral History was conducted in New Orleans, LA, on July 31, 2006 for a joint project by the Jewish Women's Archive partnered with the Goldring/Woldenberg Institute of Southern Jewish Life (ISJL) to capture the voices and experiences of members of the Jewish communities of New Orleans and the Gulf Coast communities during Hurricane Katrina and its aftermath.
